In Isaiah 1:3 God spoke through the prophet that an ox knows its owner, the donkey its master’s crib but my people don’t consider.  What thoughtlessness Israel was guilty of… but are American Christians as guilty today as God’s people of old?  Are we less thankful than the animals?  Do we consider?

Saturday October 19, 2013 “Really?”

We are told that nearly 48% of American children receive school lunch subsidies.  That seems difficult to believe but it is true.
